Prison admissions, transfers suspended due to COVID-19

As reported here, effective Monday, March 23, the Department of Corrections has imposed a “moratorium” on prisoner intake for DOC’s prisons and juvenile detention facilities, with the exception of “essential transfers” (which is not defined). The DOC memo is here. That means defendants sentenced to prison will, for now, be kept in the county jail instead of being transferred to Dodge. Internal transfers of DOC prisoners in county jail under a contract with DOC are also suspended. The memo on that is here.

    Governor Evers and all the Sheriffs should be releasing as many inmates as they can right now. Those prisons are going to become death houses.
